VEGA sensors under extreme pressure

22. April
VEGAFLEX 86, with its extremely durable material combination, impresses users at the nuclear power station in Fuqing, China

Compact radar sensors without dead Zone deliver reliable level values in small vessels

17. March
Radar is the better ultrasonic, also in applications in small vessels

Level measurements in the deep fryer without the mess

26. February
Operating large, industrial fryers relies on a single level measurement made in a small side chamber using a non-contact 80 GHz radar.
Level measurements in large industrial fryers have traditionally been made using contact technology. More and more food processing facilities are finding more success with non-contact 80 GHz radar.

Compact radar sensors deliver reliable level values independently of process and environmental influences

11. February
Radar is the better ultrasonic under any kind of process or environmental conditions

Radiometric Measurements and X-Ray Interference

10. February
X-ray interference with radiometric, or nuclear, instrumentation is a serious problem that can result in measurement errors and permanent damage to detectors. This white paper discusses users’ options for preventing errors, avoiding damage, and continuing to measure during X-ray interference events.

New compact radar level instruments defy buildup to deliver reliable measurement

16. January
Even in applications with heavy buildup, radar is the better ultrasonic.

Debottlenecking the throughput with VEGAPULS 69

12. December 2019
Radar level transmitter VEGAPULS 69 ensures efficiency in major iron ore mining operation for a more reliable material flow and a better process coordination.

80 GHz radar vs. ultrasonic: Non-contact Level Measurement Technology Comparison

04. November 2019
radar vs ultrasonic
When it comes to non-contact continuous level measurement, radar and ultrasonic are two of the most common technologies used. Both technologies are used for similar applications across industries, and both types of devices use similar principles to make a level measurement. However, each technology has varying degrees of success in different applications. This paper will compare and contrast 80 GHz radar sensors with ultrasonic transmitters for liquid and solid level measurements.

Preventing oil storage tank overfill hazards with a more reliable high level alarm: Application of the Month

01. November 2019
overfill 3
Floating roof tanks are widely used at refineries everywhere, and spills in these vessels are not only costly, they’re also an environmental hazard. Fortunately, mitigating overfill risks is simplified by using a radar level sensor with an electronic output connected to a high level alarm, and in this application, the VEGAPULS 64 is the ideal radar sensor for the job.
